Last week, I wrote here about Bonny Becker’s A Christmas for Bear (Candlewick, September 2017), illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton, and M.E. Furman’s A World of Cookies for Santa (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, October 2017), illustrated by Susan Gal. I’m following up with a bit of art today.

Enjoy!
